This year seems to have been the one for groom styling to really have made its mark; we’ve seen some wonderful – and oh so stylish- trends from Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (loving the inclusion of waistcoats this Summer!) and some equally show stopping accessories.

So we were all swooning over the absolutely beautiful floral bow tie that the man of style, Michael Taylor, wore to Melbourne Cup Day earlier this month; we went weak at the knees with his eye-catching design from last year – this racing season though Michael, the founder of EMTI PR and Marketing, said it was about breaking all the rules!!!

“It’s traditionally known that girls wear the feature pieces, including flowers, said Michael.” “But, why can’t guys do the same in their own way? So, with Angie’s Floral Design, the idea was to go for Autumn colours for Spring racing to mix it up a bit.”

“Rich navy and brown tones were matched with coral Autumn colours for my custom suit by Wil Valor. Then we matched the outfit to the flowers using darker tones and orange florals to bring it all together. This year, it was about standing out! With a mix of ranunculus, orchids, roses and peppercorns, we decided to go for more of a ‘garden’ look for the floral bow tie. In the end it weighed one kilogram and had a super lush feel.”

What a unique way for fashion forward grooms to make a statement in style; perfect for Summer garden party weddings! With his amazing flair, we’re sure Michael is already thinking about his creation for 2017; we can’t wait to see it!
